Great statue

Quite near to the Parliament you'll find this amazing statue, which has some special vibe around it.

If near the Parliament or Szabadszag Ter, don't miss this thought-provoking and well-done memorial. When taken in the context of the man's contributions circa 1956, and seeing him gazing off to the West (which failed to aid the cause of freedom), it is especially poignant and appreciated. A pretty spot to rest your legs and contemplate.

IMRE NAGY was an important Hungarian leader who stood up to the brutal Soviet regime in 1956 and paid for it with his life in 1958 . The statue looks amazing and set in its own little grounds looks fabulous. I got some great photos took of my brother standing on the bridge,the bridge was a tad slippy so be... More

Imre Nagy was a communist politician, the prime minister during the 1956 revolution. He was executed after the revolution. It is very close to the Parliement.

Budapest has a wonderful selection of really excellent statuary around the city and this is another fine example.

After seeing the Shoes on the Danube we carried on walking. Round the back of the Parliament Building is a brass figure, looking well to do on a bridge. Stopped for photos with this person then went to the chocolate shop opposite. Loads of tourists about and we all waited our turn for photos. Nice.

We decided to go on one of the many 'free' walking tours (you have to pay and be respectful) available, and it was the Communist Tour. We went to lots of different places with an excellent guide who knew almost everything there was to know about living in Communist Budapest, but when we reached this bridge sculpture she was quite...

Stumbled accross this huge monument which looked lovely in the snow although I wasn't sure what it was a monument for at the time. Good to see if you're in the area

Another one of those things you simply come across by chance in any large city. Ideal place to have a picture taken on the small bridge next to the statue, but little else.

There is a nicely made sculpture of a hatted man on a bridge that you encounter suddenly near Parliament. It's nice in just how approachable the subject seems, standing on a bridge rather than looking down at you from his horse, or pedestal, or just high atop something. It's a lovely sculpture, but the problem is that it's an important... More

Staying in District V / Inner City

Neighborhood Profile
District V / Inner City
Discover the Inner City along the banks of the Danube, with its fashionable shops and iconic buildings. The Inner-City Parish Church and St. Stephen’s Basilica stand out as two of the finest examples of architecture in the area. If you are still hunting for more historical treats, then the ruins of the medieval city walls on Kecskeméti Utca are a must-visit while the Soviet War Memorial is also worthy of attention and relevant to Hungary’s more recent history. If shopping is on your itinerary, then be prepared: the market squares in this area are an absolute delight, particularly during the Christmas period, but even throughout the year you’ll find the latest trends in the shops on Vaci Utca.
